Deep Thrusting

This technique is very simple, once you have applied enough lubricant to your anal dildo slowly begin to enter it. Start entering it as far as you can and then pull it out. You can then repeat this time and time again.

Shallow Thrusting

Shallow thrusting is essentially the opposite from deep penetration. This technique is very simple and just requires you to slightly enter the anal dildo into the beginning of your rectum.

P-spot Stimulation

This technique is just for men. When a man uses an anal dildo an amount of pressure is applied to the prostate gland or p-spot. The prostate gland is a build up of nerves in the rectum. Stimulating it correctly can lead to men having full body orgasms. Dildos that feature a curved shaft are perfect for p-spot stimulation as they allow you to apply even more pressure to the p-spot.


This technique simply requires the user to twist the dildo inside them. You can combine this technique with both the shallow and deep thrusting techniques for even more stimulation.
